Thus Spake Zarathustra

by Friedrich Nietzsche Michael Hulse Joanna Kavenna

In this new translation by Michael Hulse – the first in English by a poet – Zarathustra is revealed in all his bold and ironic splendour as a man who prizes self worth above all else as a moral code to live by. Radical, uncategorisable, contradictory and often humorous, Thus Spake Zarathustra is a grand celebration of human existence by one of the most influential thinkers of the past two centuries.

My Katherine Mansfield Project

by Kirsty Gunn

When Kirsty Gunn received a Randell Fellowship from the British Academy and Carnegie Foundation in 2009 she returned to spend the winter in Wellington, near the childhood home of Katherine Mansfield, the writer to whom she’d always felt most connected. In this lyrical essay, Gunn explores the ideas of home and belonging – and of her own deep connection to a place where every flower and gatepost seems embroidered with the memory of some story or another.

Happy Half-Hours. Selected Writings of A. A. Milne

by A. A. Milne Frank Cottrell-Boyce

A delightful selection of articles by the ever-popular A. A. Milne, many of which haven’t been in print for decades. Milne had a talent for regularly turning out a thousand whimsical words on lost hats and umbrellas, golf, married life, cheap cigars, and any amount of life’s other little difficulties. It also includes some of his fiercely argued writings on pacifism.
